Mike Sorrentino is taking control of the situation. Pun ... intended!

Perhaps the best known member of the Jersey Shore cast has signed a deal for a third season. Now his goal is to get the rest of his raise-seeking crew on board.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, all eight of the principal stars were close to signing new contracts today after initially asking for $30,000 per episode.

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Jenni "JWoww" Farley and the rest of their partners in crime made $5,000 an episode in Season 1 and $10,000 per for Season 2.

Considering the first season was only nine episodes, that really wasn't that much. Season 2 will feature a robust 24 episodes, giving the cast a big raise.

Yet they wanted more still, and it looks like they'll get it.

No word if The Sitch's contract has a steroids clause. As in he must use them.

MTV released the following statement: "We don't comment on any contractual conversations. Season 2 premieres July 29 and production is on schedule."

Rest assured, The Situation is already ahead of schedule. Rumor has it he was offered a one-time $60,000-$180,000 bonus to sign on for Season 3 and 4.

The network supposedly thinks The Situation, Snooki, and Pauly D are the only three non-expendable stars, but hopefully the gang will remain intact.

"Mike has been packed and ready to go for days for Jersey Shore 3 and is excited to move forward with the shooting," his manager said in a statement.

"After hearing there was a rumored strike, Mike decided in order to get Season 3 done, he was going to have to lead the pack and wants to encourage the rest of his cast to follow his lead and return for another amazing season of Jersey Shore."

"Mike is confident the rest of the cast will rally around him as they have in the past. The Situation has always been respected and well-liked by the entire cast. He felt that he could break the stalemate by putting these rumors to rest."

Ever-altruistic, and always a leader.

If you've ever wanted to look as ripped as Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino from Jersey Shore, well here's your chance. You don't even have to take HGH either.

The reality star is releasing a workout DVD so his fans can get their own abdominal situation on. He shot the video in New Jersey the other day with GT Media.

Sources tell the N.Y. Post the "intense total-body workout" includes a "bonus abs" section. The man manages a gym on Staten Island ... he knows his stuff.

Dude is so ripped, his pants can't even stay buttoned.

No word yet if Sorrentino, who is also releasing a clothing line soon, also has tips on applying hair gel, hitting on women or getting that special orange tan.

We guarantee The Situation quotes are priceless, though.

If you've seen him on TV, you know he's not exactly dying to be exclusive with anyone. But that doesn't mean Mike Sorrentino isn’t looking around for love.

But what exactly is The Situation looking for?

Jersey Shore Homies

“I’m a Cancer and I’m Italian,” he said at the launch of NoX Edge, the workout steroid supplement. “I like to take care of people and do nice things. It doesn’t matter if her hair is blonde or brown, but she must be giving and generous, like myself.”

“Looks are big,” Mike concedes, while evaluating any romantic options.

Maybe for long-term prospects, anyway. Dude hooked up with Snooki.

Can you resist a piece of this? Think about it, this display was during a red carpet appearance ... it's as clothed as you'll ever see him. Talk about a Situation!

Sorrentino notes that the ideal woman goes deeper than the surface elements of romance, although she does have to work well with him and his lifestyle.

“I’m the type of person that’s open, whatever happens, happens,” The Situation says. “Ultimately, she’s just got to work well with the way I live my life."

"I need a girl who knows a relationship is 50-50.”

But he cautions that if certain boundaries are overstepped, he's outta here: “If she’s bossy, controlling or high maintenance, those are dealbreakers for me.”

Jersey Shore premieres July 29. Check out the Season 2 trailer!

Wanna look like The Situation? Forget fake tanning and crunches.

Jersey Shore star Mike Sorrentino is set to make it easy for fans to copy his unique look: Us Weekly reports the well-chiseled ladies' man has partnered with Dilligaf by Bohica Bill to launch a line of "couture" clothing. 

Your Shirt is Too Small

These T-shirts, sweatshirts and accessories will hit stores next month.

This is more confusing than the popularity of Jersey Shore itself: When was the last time The Situation even wore a shirt?!?

"Mike 'The Situation' embodies our irreverent approach to life," wrote Dilligaf President Jodi Massry, supposedly seriously, in a statement. "He lives the 'Let's not take things so seriously' mentality every day."

By the way: Dilligaf stands for "Do I Look Like I Give A F***. Seriously. We couldn't make that up if we tried.

If you thought his attempt at rap was difficult to stomach, sources on the set of Jersey Shore say The Situation's diva-like antics are making him a pain to deal with.

The Sitch (Mike Sorrentino) has become an egomaniac convinced he knows more about making a hit show than the producers or MTV - and he's calling the shots.

As one source summed up the matter of the Staten Island gym manager, "It's gotten ridiculous. If we tell [Mike] not to cross the street, he will. He just defies us."

Moreover, the producers are trying to keep the cast real, despite the guys and girls being quasi-celebrities at this point, and that task is hardest with The Situation.

Angelina and The Situation

Jersey Shore's The Situation with Angelina (the random girl who left).

They don't want the Jersey Shore cast members making deals on the phone, bragging to others about their fame or their wallet, etc. - and he's out of control.

As a result, a lot of what's shot is unusable, because it doesn't even resemble a reality show - and that's not even what's getting to the MTV producers most.

Once a week, the cast is given time to deal with personal business deals off camera. Mike is on the phone all the time, 'cause he thinks peeps wanna see this.

You could say it's become a bit of a frustrating ... Situation.

We were just thinking that The Situation from Jersey Shore needed to embark on a rap career and release a song called "The Situation" when lo and behold!

The hot track hits iTunes next week. The Sitch knows a thing or two about wife-beaters, but his beats? Would you call them ill - or will they simply make you ill?

A collaboration with Fatman Scoop, DJ Class, The Disco Fries, the song may be one of the worst attempts at music in history even after all the sound effects.

But who are we to judge? Take a listen and vote for yourself:

What do you think of The Situation's attempt at rap?

One is a Grammy-winning singer and certifiable douchebag who gets lots of girls and brags about it with absurd comments regarding sexual napalm.

The other is an MTV reality star who talks about himself in the third person, fake tans, also gets a lot of (far less attractive) girls and is proud of it.

  • John Mayer Hair
  • We Gots a Situation

One has chiseled abs because he works at a gym. The other last visited in gym in approximately 1998. One has earrings, the other lots of hair.

If it came down to John Mayer or The Situation, and your life depended on it and/or you were really drunk, who would you rather ... you know?

It's a difficult call, we sympathize with you. But vote below.

When Jersey Shore's Snooki and The Situation do battle with Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy in a fashion face-off ... there is no way to complete that sentence.

We're pretty sure this is unprecedented in human history. What can we say, we're trailblazers here at THG, with a considerable nod to last night's CMT Awards.

Mya Fashion Choice

All of the above scored invites to the country music event, as you probably guessed by now, and showcased their drastically different styles on the red carpet.

Proving just how country Jersey can be, the sparkling Nicole Polizzi amps up her bump while The Situation (Mike Sorrentino) covered up his abs – for once.

Meanwhile, ESPN reporter Erin Andrews rocked a skin-tight mini with her handsome date, former Dancing with the Stars partner and possible boyfriend.

Which tandem looked better? Vote below!

We've already profiled a lot of the fashion choices from the MTV Movie Awards, from The Hills stars past and present to Lindsay Lohan and Paris and Nicky Hilton.

The douchebag male contingent has been under-represented until now.

Mike Sorrentino (The Situation) and Paul DelVecchio (DJ Pauly D) were on hand to preview the second season of Jersey Shore along with their fellow cast mates.

They looked about how you expect - and the opening minutes of the July premiere, which MTV previewed Sunday, promises better Jersey Shore quotes than ever.

You know when The Situation and Pauly D roll up in this piece, there's gonna be some hair gel, earrings and fake tans on display. But who did it up better? Vote!

  • Sitch
  • DJ Pauly D Style

The Situation from Jersey Shore needs to keep his shirt on, lest local police be forced to break up riots on the boardwalk. Talk about guns that need registration!

Seriously, though. The Sitch (real name Mike Sorrentino) was ordered to cover up last weekend after cops were concerned that his skin flashing could spark fights.

Police legitimately fear that The Situation shirtless may cause a large crowd to get violent. Not a bad bet, but imagine if this were Ronnie Magro after 8-10 drinks.

It all went down at the Aztec Ocean Resort in Seaside Heights, N.J., where the gang is back after a stint in Miami, and 3,000 people had gathered on the streets.

The occasion: Watching The Situation dance on a hotel balcony.

You can see how this right here could cause pandemonium.

According to the Seaside Heights Chief of Police, peeps were being and shoved in the crowd so hard that the Chief personally asked the Jersey Shore star to cover up and possibly tone it down before the crowd got completely out of control.

The Chief said later that The Situation totally understood and even put his shirt back on, but if you think this is the last you've seen of him shirtless, think again!

We hope this was caught on video. The Jersey Shore quotes would be priceless. We're also glad it wasn't Snooki dancing on a balcony. No one needs to see that.
